Enjoy the comparison video:

Japanese versional Contra called "魂斗羅", I use this version and this version can save time in cut scenes. Use two players to finish this game as soon as possible.

At level 2, making super fire is very important, control every frame and control S-gun bullets can make bullets in a line.

At level 3, making full use of double-floor jump. Three special double-floor jump point in it.

At level 4, in third stage, re-fire can be more faster. At boss stage, 1P helps 2P to destroy the boss.

At level 6, 1P is a leader in front of 2P, making full use of S gun and let boss to eat every bullets.

At level 8, mini boss and final boss are recording in single-frame.

I didn't use double S gun in level 4, it makes lags and waste lots of time, so just 1P use upgraded S gun.

Special thanks to: Xipo韩晖 helps me to research this TAS.
